Käpt'n Posted May 31, 2016 Share Posted May 31, 2016 Ever since I started supporting some animal conservation networks I felt like a hypocrite because I was eating meat which in turn pretty much enables the suffering of other animals. I have been meat-free for about two weeks now. Feels pretty good! I'm not entirely sure but I feel a little more healthy, too. But I could be imagining that. The whole veggie stuff doesn't taste too bad as well. I tried some fake cordon blue, fake chicken nuggets and vegetarian "meatballs". That's what they are called, I never ate something with quotation marks in the name before! Pretty exciting (and scary because I had no idea what they would taste like*). All that stuff is pretty alright, nothing amazing though. But that's ok, I want to cook more anyway instead of just heating stuff up. The vegan Bolognese sauce with soy instead of meat surprised me though. It wasn't great but it definitely was one of the better Bolognese sauces I have tried. And I can't tell the difference between soy and meat in this case! Same consistency and taste. Which makes sense because it's both just protein and it tastes more like the sauce than meat anyway. Going to grocery stores is hard though. One day they played a lot of ads for barbecue meat over the speakers. It's like they were trying to tempt me. But I resisted! When I first started I messed up though. I was incredibly tired when I went to my way to work and wanted to get some food. I stumbled to one of the food stands at the central station and when I "woke up" at the platform I noticed that I was eating a baguette with meat on it. Didn't happen again but it really annoyed me. However, there is one thing that really sucks about this. I am farting constantly. And I have never taken so many dumps throughout the day. Holy crap. Literally. It's awful. And that stench! Oh man... Back in school during a really hot summer I let one rip in a classroom once and we nearly had to evacuate the room (not making this up, it was amazingly bad) and I was proud about that, but even to me this is pretty awful. So anyway, I feel great, I think I can go through with this. Bonus rave: A customer handed me a "broken" phone at work and I think I got it to work again. It's even better than my current phone! Yay :3 *They are dry and tasteless. It's like you are chewing on nothing. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
